Is my child required to wear a mask at all times? Is a face shield sufficient?
As outlined in the RTSD Health and Safety Plan and in accordance with the Governor’s mandate for all students, ages 2 and up, to wear a face mask, we will be working with all students to support the wearing of a mask. Exceptions are outlined in the RTSD Health and Safety Plan as well as the Governor’s order, including for medical reasons and a child’s disability. The anticipated exception for a child’s disability should be communicated directly to the assigned case manager so they can address this within their educational plan. All staff will be working directly with students to support the teaching and learning of this new social skill. Face shield options are also outlined in the RTSD Health and Safety Plan.
